URBANWAT is a project financed by the EU Commission under the call “Closing the Water Cycle Gap”of  the Water JPI Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. This research propose an improvement of tools and criteria for groundwater management in urban areas to ensure the sustainability of urban water resources and define their potential uses, from an integral approach.

 

New METAgenomics and molecular based tools for european scale identification and control of emergent microbial contaminants in irrigation WATER.

Irrigation water may be the source of microbiological contamination of fresh vegetables and has been associated to important food-borne epidemics of gastroenteritis, acute hepatitis and other important diseases.

Diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene are the major causes of child mortality worldwide. During humanitarian crises, the availability of safe drinking-water sources become the biggest priority due to overcrowding and the easy transmission of fecal pathogens. Many orally transmitted viruses produce subclinical infection and symptoms are only observed in a small proportion of the population.
